Thousands flock to Greenway Park for Spring Into Liverpool

Tuesday 19 September 2017

Liverpool Mayor Wendy Waller was delighted with turnout at Spring into Liverpool last Saturday 16 September, as more than 6000 people came to Greenway Park, West Hoxton, during the course of the day.

“This event was a wonderful celebration of the new season and it gets better every year,” said Mayor Waller.

“I was very happy to see so many local residents enjoying Nick Jr’s Paw Patrol, the free fitness demonstrations, rides, food trucks and the outdoor screening of the movie Sing.”

Liverpool City Council had a range of services on offer, including the Mayor and Councillors’ mobile office, free microchipping, free native plants and a pop-up library for kids.

“As Mayor of Liverpool, I was proud of the strong community spirit that was on display last weekend. These kinds of events provide a good way for people to come together, meet their neighbours and make new friends,” she said.

“Greenway Park is an ideal site for the event – it has plenty of room for multiple stages and can accommodate large rides.

“It’s also situated in the middle of one of the fastest-growing areas of Sydney and I’m happy we were able to provide an event for residents who live around West Hoxton and Carnes Hill.

“I would like to thank everyone who came to the event, as well as our sponsors – University of Wollongong and Michael Clarke Recreation Centre.

“I would also like to thank all the performers and stall holders who worked so hard to make the event such a great success.”
